Wynn Resorts Is Gaming for Higher Prices

Wynn Resorts has been tracing out a bottom over the past few months, and it may have been tested in January. The stock delivered a strong earnings report last week, bolted higher the following day, and then enjoyed an impressive follow-through with great turnover to boot. A series of lower highs has been broken significantly with the downtrend line now providing support. Ahead we see the 200 day moving average. If we reach it within the next few days, Wynn will be at a very overbought level and could see a pullback.

The MACD is now on a strong buy signal, and with the relative strength at overbought levels, more upside will make it much tougher to change direction. Turnover has been massive over the past few days – the stock has traded well over 5x the average day’s volume. That means one thing: Institutional buyers are coming back to the stock in a big way. There is a big gap to fill around the 100 area, which will happen eventually but not overnight. Wynn is one of my favorite stocks for 2016, and this latest move has it going in the right direction.
